Dr. Bronwen Lichtenstein recently won a seed fund award from The University of Alabama’s Center for Community-Based Partnerships to aid her research on HIV stigma reduction.

Dr. Lichtenstein’s project will provide UA students in a sociology class with a service-learning opportunity to participate in a program designed to reduce stigma for community members who are living with HIV/AIDS. The two groups will meet together for structured, social activities with a goal of increasing trust and reducing stigma by fostering meaningful social interaction.
